Description
Standard Horizon HX890e Floating DSC Handheld VHF Radio

The HX890 Floating DSC handheld VHF radio takes all the features from the popular HX870 and adds some great new features in a new rounded case with the same rugged waterproof design as its predecessor. 

New Feature - Scrambler

Two scrambler systems built in, both a 4 code CVS2500A and a 32 code FVP-42 scrambler system ensure secure communications out on the water. 

New Feature - FM Receiver

A built in FM Broacast band receiver, during times when radio communication is not necessary, relax with some music on the FM Radio broadcast bands.

Easy to Operate Icon/Menu System

Forget about trying to memorize the owners manual. A brand new Easy to Operate Menu system makes this the most intuitive handheld on the market. DSC calling, position sharing, waypoint and route navigation, navigation to DSC distress call can all be performed with just a few simple steps.

GM (Group Monitor) using DSC Group Position Call

This new ADVANCED feature allows you to continuously track and display position information of up to 9 pre-selected vessels. Their position information is displayed on the compass page relative to your location on the display.

Water Activated Emergency Strobe Light

If the radio falls in the water an emergency strobe light is automatically activated, even when the unit is turned off!!! The strobe can be reconfigured to flash on and off, flash SOS, or set to stay on continuously.

Integrated 66 Channnel WAAS GPS receiver

A highly sensitive 66 channel WAAS GPS receiver allows the HX890 to lock on to a position quickly and accurately. With position information displayed clearly on the display the user will be able to share position information using DSC and navigate to waypoints using the waypoint navigation feature of the radio.

Oversized full dot matrix display

The HX890 boasts one of the largest displays in a hand held VHF radio. Measuring 1.7" wide by 1.7" tall, or 2.3" diagonal.

Questions & Answers
Questions & Answers
Can the HX890E be plugged into an external aerial? Mike Cambray

Yes, it can

04/06/19

Hi - I’m interested in buying this radio to use in portugal. Is it limited to the US or with the right ofcom license can it be used in pt?Thanks Bob S

When you receive the handset, there are instructions on how to set it up for your preferred region. You will have the choice of International, United Kingdom, Belgium, Netherlands, Sweden or Germany. Selecting the international region would allow you to use in in Portugal
26/11/19

what range have these radios got ? robbie lundy

Marine VHF radios work on a line-of-sight basis. That is, they can transmit and receive to and from another antenna as long as that antenna is above the horizon.How far is that? Standing in the cockpit of a boat, the distance to the horizon for most adults is about three miles.

01.08.2019

Is the DSC function registered to the boat or owner of the Handheld radio Clive Lawrence

Digital Selective Calling is achieved with an MMSI number programmed into the VHF. The user applies for an MMSI with Ofcom. Please click here for further help.

Hello the price for two (2) units? Many Thanks Manuel Castro

This image simply shows the two colour options available. The price advertised is per unit, not for two

5.2.2020

Does this hand held VHF HX890e has the following ?1. Bluetooth wireless technology2. Say again rewind 3. burb vibrating feature Zbigniew

The HX890 does have the burp vibrating feature, however it does not have Bluetooth or a rewind function. If you are looking for a handheld DSC VHF with all of these features, you would need to look at the Cobra HH600 (Product code 200434)
25/09/19

How do I charge this Paul Walker
The USB cable that accompanies the Radio that is used to programme the unit, is also the same charging cable, so you will either need a house hold plug aka apple plugs work well or a 12V USB charger for the car or boat. You can even use the computer to charge it, if you don't have this or choose not to buy one. 04/06/20.
